lot of ground to cover, martin. i think that one of president obama's goals will be to really send a strong message to prime minister benjamin netanyahu as well as the people of israel and other people in the region that he stands firmly with israel. as you know, the president and the prime minister have had a somewhat rocky relationship. so it's partially to smooth over that relationship. the president has taken some criticism, particularly during the last presidential campaign, that he wasn't a strong enough ally to israel. i think part of it will be to smooth over that perception. but i think you will see the president reiterate the fact the united states will do whatever is necessary to make sure that iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon. of course, that is a big concern for israel and will also sort of reiterate the united states will try to continue to isolate syria and to make sure that at some point assad does step down from power soon. so i think those are two of the key issues you're going to hear him talk about. also, martin, this is not just a trip to talk to the leaders. ac
